“I like to dance. All kinds of dancing, all clubs.
Even in the street, wherever there is music.
I like when they do dancing in the square over there.”
Gus runs a hot dog stand during the baseball season.
When I see him he quotes the whole season’s dates to me.
He told me he loves going to all the other hot dog stands for sides,
and he loads his dog until the bread is all soggy–his favorite!
“We’re here for her birthday.
We don’t spend a lot of time here, we’re from Tacoma.”
(Unfortunately I only got one shot, so I’ll say the birthday girl is
making a wish and thank all three ladies for chatting with me.)
“I like this area but it can be a little creepy.
We’re just trying to find an affordable club.”
“People need to just get along…be nicer to each other.
And, this neighborhood needs more live music.
We play live shows here every other Thursday.”
“If I could say one thing? It would be to come and see it before it changes over.
This used to be the grunge scene, with national acts.
It’s about to become Disneyfied.”
“And don’t make me look like a convict. All pictures make me look like a convict.”
No, you don’t look like a convict. And I’m glad your business is in the neighborhood. 🙂
“We really need more live music.”
